Well ladies and gents...I did it! I sold my entire collection of accessories and bags....I only kept the following: MC speedy (this was what drew me into LV and I freaking love this bag) Monogram Stephen (Ummm ya...no way...only pry this out of my cold dead hands) Batignolles Vertical (this is still debatable...the Hampstead would probably serve me better because it is all weather...so this might go to) Cherry Blossom papillon (GOSH I LOVE this bag! I just bought it a couple months ago....so the novelty hasn't worn off!) And I'm debating on keeping my Damier papillon...but if I get the Hampstead then it can go! I kept some accessories as well: mini lin cles, wallet, makeup pochette, multicles rabats, all my bandeaus (except my groom), agenda, MC fleurs keyholder...everything else is gone...I even sold books and catalogs. I did a tally/inventory...I owned 33 pieces of LV totally 21000......well...that'll buy ALOT of Balenciaga! HEEHEE! My first Chloe paddington is on its way too! But never fear....I am an LV girl at heart! I am probably going to buy the Neo Cabby...and hubby is only allowed to buy me LV (because I wouldn't trust him to get the right color, etc. for Bbags)....so I'll have him buying stuff on special occasions! I will still be a heavy presence over here...and still running RAOK! I;ve just received a bunch of PMs in the last 24 hours...and I wanted y'all to know! Now the WHY??? I just got bored.....with my collection....I'm tired of trying to keep up all the time. In just over 1 year I spent 21000 on LV (yea not lot for some people...but cmon peeps..that's like more than a Mini Cooper) and had bags stahsed away that hadn't ever been used! I am just not at a position in my life where I can spend that kind of money to use something once and then let it sit. I'm also not a collector...I am a user...and I wasn't using so it had to go! I'm also a tad peeved at LV....I am getting sick of paying 2K for a canvas bag....yea OK they'll last forever, they hold their value yada yada yada....but the fact remains: 2K for a canvas bag! I'm also overwhelmed by the number of stuff coming out...my personality is one where I want everything and I want it NOW! So I need to step back and reevaluate.....I need a brand where they don't overload me!!! I'm sorry y'all...I LOVE you all and I'm still here!!!!!
